The International Conference on Group B Strep (ICGBS) 2020 July 20-22, 2020 Registration is complimentary!
The International Conference on Group B Strep (ICGBS) 2020 is an online collaboration of healthcare professionals, laboratorians, researchers, families, policy makers, and other interested individuals working to increase awareness of GBS disease.
Approximately 1 in 4 pregnant women carry GBS, which can infect babies during pregnancy through the first few months of life. Not all babies exposed to GBS become infected, but, for those who do, the results can be devastating. GBS can cause babies to be miscarried, stillborn, born prematurely, become very sick, have lifelong handicaps, or die.
